The wonderfully creepy mood of this game never subsides. Every screen and encounter is dripping with it.
Your creativity with some of the creatures - the tree chef and the soul-stealing vine critter in particular is also most impressive. I also love that Hansel is this complete moron, yet occasionally useful, and that Gretel loves him in spite of his oafishness.
I had some slowdown issues at times, and once glitched when crossing the swamp (the next screen would not load, but I couldn't move) and it was occasionally frustrating when I'd stand somewhere in which I could perform an action (Gretel would have her "dialogue" bubble up) but once I opened the knapsack, its item menu was in the way of where I needed to use the item. These are minor details, and there is just so much awesome in this game that I give it a 10 in spite of it.
When I got to the gingerbread house at the end... ohhhh shit. I just know part 3 is going to be excellent.
